Internet safety champions
Here at Chawson First School children from Years 1-4 are chosen by their classmates to be ministers and a member of the Internet Safety Committee.
The role of the Internet Safety Ministers is to ensure that E-safety is embedded throughout the school and that our children and parents are equipped with the knowledge they need in order to keep themselves safe online. We recognise that the world is full of technology and we have a duty to educate our children to use this technology safely.
This Year Internet Safety week (starting the 5th February) is about focusing on differences and changes that happen with the Internet. Our Online Safety Ministers delivered a whole school assembly talking to children about how things can change on line, what to look for and who can help. They also performed a poem and set a new poster challenge. The children where confident to say what they would do if they saw something which they did not like and will be completing on line safety lessons throughout the week, focusing on different aspects of being safe on line including devices, gaming and use of Apps.
Information has been sent home to parents to help promote being safe on line.
'Our internet safety champions presented an assembly today Monday 6th February to the whole school with the focus on 'Safer Internet Day' which takes place tomorrow Tuesday 7th February.
They have set the children the challenge of creating a poster. The winning posters will be displayed around school. Watch this video to find out what the children's task is
Enjoy creating your posters.
Remember you can draw your own or use technology safely to do this!'
"Our internet safety champions have been working hard to create their very own internet safety display board in the computing suite. It highlights the key rules when using the internet and our champions will make sure to promote this when they are in the computing suite with their peers. Remember to be SMART on the internet!'
